Mexaheads

(4 years ago)
Designed by Bala, Mexaheads is a brand of 'Art Toys' inspired by Mexican culture.  "We were assigned to create the brand identity and packaging design for the collection of Pre-Hispanic Art Toys that we named Mexaheads, as the collection is characterized by the peculiarity of the huge shape of their heads. The pieces to be intervened, needed to tell a story that would inspire the collector. Here, the heart of the project lies in the syncretism of the ancient Mayan culture and the trendy Art Toys, two apparently different aspects."          Related Posts:Belleville Brewing Co.Vi Novell 2013 Wine

Oju Vinagre

(4 years ago)
Shades of oranges with a minimal design was the approach Senyor Estudi created for Oju Vinage.  "There are no two eye irises alike, just as there are no two vinegars alike. With base liquids of over 80 years of age, each cask produces a vinegar with a different aroma, color and taste, creating a symphony when they come together. Their vivid colors, which range from straw yellow to rust red, passing through various amber tones, can deceive us. This is not wine. It's not garnatxa. A warning: Keep an eye out for Oju! wine vinegar."        Related Posts:Belleville Brewing Co.Vi Novell 2013 Wine
